HubSpot Software Virtual International Women’s Day Conference
Our culture team came to Covered Speakers Bureau as we were planning our annual employee conference for International Women’s Day.
International Women’s Day allows us to provide a series of virtual conferences with various keynote speakers – we usually look to have a leader in technology who is female to both inform and inspire our global team of female employees.
Covered Speakers Bureau helped us with our JAPAC (Japan & Asia Pacific team) virtual conference – we were looking for a guest keynote speaker in that particular region.
We asked Adam and his team to help find us Leanne Robers, the founder of She Loves Tech. She Loves Tech is the world’s largest acceleration platform for women and technology – it’s core aim is to highlight the fact that women represent a new generation of innovation and disruptive thinking.
Empowered by technology, they are changing the way we live and work.
She Loves Tech helps raise funds for female-led start-up businesses.
Leanne talked about how She Loves Tech has already helped 8000+ start-ups across 50 countries and has helped raise over $250 million in funding for their start-ups provided by some of the world’s top business leaders.
Leanne talked about how She Loves Tech organise competitions where female business owners can apply for funding.
Leanne Robers talked to our employees about how She Loves Tech essentially give the stage for female entrepreneurs to shine as they are.
Her inspiring work as the co-founder went down well with our female employees who attended her session – they benefited from Leanne’s message of never underestimating the ripple effect of what you do and how their actions can help topple empires and exisiting frameworks that have traditionally held back women in the workplace.
Adam and his team at Covered Speakers Bureau were an amazing help in setting up a call with our team and Leanne before the session.
Leanne’s feedback working with Covered
It’s so important to have organisations such as this who want to bring in speakers like me, because diversity topics are something they truly value and go beyond just a “check in the box” to really incorporating this into their planning and strategy. Adam has been so wonderful to work with and has made the process of navigating a large organization like Hubspot seamless and easy.
Thank you so much for the wonderful conversation and sharing your experience with us so authentically today! The energy you brought to the talk was contagious and it was pure joy to listen to you.
The feedback has been nothing but positive and our employees really appreciated the vulnerability you brought to the conversation and left the HubTalk feeling so inspired! Especially your analogy about rubber and glass balls was instantly picked up by our employees who resonated with it deeply.
As a Thank You, we have made a donation to our charity partner Halogen Foundation Singapore in your name. Their mission is to empower the future generation of young leaders.
We absolutely LOVED having you with us - Thank you again for spending your time with us!
